Igloo News – July 2017

Hey everyone!

I hope all is well? The obvious (and best) news is that so far this summer is hotter than last summer, which is awesome!


Right now we are developing a new show titled FANTASY IRELAND, which is an animated comedy series set in a fantastical, dysfunctional version of contemporary Dublin. Each episode is based around an abstract version of modern Ireland mixed with fragments of Irish mythology combined with hilarious off-the-cuff banter. Mick O’Hara and Ciaran Morrison are the writers on board and the show will be directed by myself. See a short clip below.

The world premiere of our short film DEPOSITS made under the Irish Film Board’s SHORT STORIES film scheme will take place at the 2017 Galway Film Fleadh. If anyone is attending, please let us know and come say hello. See the trailer below and to find out more on the Short Stories film scheme, see the Irish Film Boards website here:

Deposits is an Igloo Animations production, directed by Trevor Courtney, written by Adrienne Michel-Long, produced by Michael Algar and funded by the Irish Film Board.

The screening time for Deposits is 12pm in Galway’s Town Hall on Saturday 15th July. If you are going, make sure you get your tickets soon. This will sell out very quickly!

Final stages of production on the HSE’s book on the Body, Human Reproduction and Growing-up are now underway.


Here is 2nd video we have produced for Genomics Medicine Ireland. It’s a Study Participation video using our very own Gimme The Short Version service –

And, last thing – we have also moved offices to a new bright and beautiful location. It’s a top floor office that overlooks Trinity College on Leinster Street South – Not Bad!
OK, That’s about it for the moment and let’s hope the weather holds up for the rest of the summer. Enjoy the holidays and hopefully see a few of you in Galway.

Very Best,
Trevor Courtney
